"Aww F@#$, I paid $250/300 for this thing and I don't even want to play it anymore"
Fine. If thats the case, then why does the situation appear to bother you so much you needed to start this thread about it?
You come off as jealous and petty. Did you really feel the need to make purile digs at those who have lifetime subscriptions even though the lifetimers themselves had absolutely no say whatsoever at the fact Cryptic chose to throw them a couple of perks?
Your thread is pointless, juvenile and is effectively amounts to an attack on the wrong people.
These 14 years on forums don't seem to have done you any good at all. In fact, I would take a good long hard look at your post and seriously ask yourself if its perhaps time you took a break.
I'm an STO fan and a lifer. I didn't go into this choice blindly. I agree with many when I say the game needs a fair ammount of work and a desperate infusion of content. However amid that fact I'm happy to say it was money well spent. I have a lifetime membership to the only Star Trek experience I can have outside of closing my eyes and daydreaming about being on a starship. On top of that I also have a dev team that is dedicated to developing and adding content and that cares about the players and our opinions. There are many MMOs who can't even boast that.
So when you come on here and try to troll and goad people into verbal conflict I say to you... I have a life time ticket and it dosn't matter if it takes two months or two years but when STO shines I'll be here and I'll be able to say I always was here. Support the things you love.
